Shocking endings and beginnings: First super full moon August 2015


First Super Full moon 2015

Full Moon in Pisces

August 29, 2015

By Maharani Rutan©
The first of the super full moons begins with the 2nd full moon in August. This full moon will trigger our emotions, sensitivity, re-conclusiveness, and solidarity. For many, intuitions will be triggered by the energy and a great deal of awareness to humanity.

On August 29, 2015, the Super full moon in Pisces will light our sky with spectacular grace, sitting beautifully in 5 degree Virgo- Pisces axis. Some of you may even be able to see it as early as the day before, however, it be at its fullest at 2:36pm EST, 11:36am PST depending upon the orb. Perhaps the closest to this degree that can be possibly be recalled would have been August 28, 2007 at 4 degrees in Pisces.

The energy of this moon is so intense that, shocking news may come to many as early as the 21 and that energy will continue until September 5, 2015. It could be good and it could be bad whichever it is it is a nothing that was expected but was suspected.

A couple of days before the Super moon, Mercury retrograde would have entered Libra by beginning its journey through Virgo (Read about it here). The delightful sun will also enter Virgo. Jupiter has already entered Virgo (read about it here). This moon will significantly impact nearly every person. There is no reluctance that this energy will bring more supernatural gifts and we may be more prone, or subtle, to our surroundings and with others. All will seem more luminous under the nimble the full moon. This may impact individuality; becoming more inflated and mostly having to do with our personal relationships with others.

Our sleep will absolutely be troubled and often mystical moons such as this will cause human doubts to connect even more with the universal energies. When Venus enters Leo it seriously influences fun and playfulness. Virgo’s however, take a somber turn from requiring everything fun to now being graver. People you love will be led to deeper considerations. Virgo is unsurprisingly reticent, thoughtful, and a great listener. The difficulty will transpire when the relationship becomes unpredictable; there could be more apprehension in regards to gratitude. Be cautious not to be too precarious to your partner, especially those that have Virgo planets.

Be careful as people tend to be a little awkward during the full moon. Bleeding and lose blood may become a problematic; therefore if you are going for a medical procedure during the full moon take added time to care for yourself. Love, romance, poetry and compassion will be the sparks that bring illumination during the full moon, especially during the midnight hours.

The sun in Virgo and the moon in Pisces can be a very good time to heal when the physical world and spiritual world becomes one. There will be no indication of obsession with trying to find limitations but tolerance as they merge. Mantras, poonam Pooja, as well as prayers can have a key influence on soothing and outcomes as the answers are on a higher level.

On a full moon energy will cause people to become highly disconnected or self-absorbed with concern about humanity and serving others. The Moon in Pisces guides in a time of limitation and realism. Emotional ties, relaxation, healing, and assisting those less privileged is the subject of this full moon. There are also propensities to muse in a quiet place and heal interior aching and surrendering for the sake of humanity. During this full moon be very careful of indulgence, preoccupation, greediness and ego-centrism. As the moon in Pisces represent spirituality, insight, extravagance to materialism, you should focus instead predominantly on being considerate, artistic, and sympathetic.


Be considerate to everyone, as they will go through changes themselves. This transformation is absolutely essential. In less than 30 days, the Solar Eclipse will begin its journey through Virgo as it did for them in 2006 through 2008, and the Lunar Eclipse will end a cycle for Aries, which began October 18, 2013. As they were rechecked by the Universe October 8, 2014, they will be rechecked for what they have learned in two years and for the last time September 27, 2015.

You may choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all solicitations of psalms and mantras accomplishing anticipated results are reliant on upon the value of purpose. The spiritual journey is interdependent upon the journey and the intention as it must be clear and precise without selfish predispositions.

The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. The mantra for Pisces moon is:

Om Shri Shiva Namaha

(Oom sha ri shiv a Namaha )

You may reverse the mantra to Om Namaha Shivaya whichever seems easier


For those who want to learn more about mantras or just want to learn to how to pronounce them may go to this You tube video by Sarman Parmar

Additionally, as mercury continues to move backwards in time, I would suggest for Hindu practitioners, as well as those who want to follow the Hindu Philosophies, that one more mantra be added.

Om Buddah Namaha

(om bud dah Na ma ha)

For those who are celebrating Poonam, make sure you do Satyanarayan Pooja and recite the above mantra changing the Namaha to Swaha.

Make sure you have crossed out aspirations that have the slightest change and create 12 new ones. This is a very spiritual moon; aspirations regarding materialism must be voided and replaced with harmony, union, thoughtfulness, and kindness. For Christian practitioners, I recommend to light a white candle on that day. Carve your name on the candle, anoint it with Frankincense oil, and chant Psalm 65 three times.

I am not an astrologer, rather a Vedic reader who unites the energy of both Vedic and Western astrology as a basis to Vedic philosophy. Vedic readers examine the troubles to contribution in shifting contrary destiny and karma to bring optimistic pathways into self-concept as well as self-actualization so the passage can be as sublime as the path that it taken. I highly suggest that if you follow western astrology or are a little curious, I suggest you speak to my recommended advisers Leslie Hale or Xtrology. Otherwise you may seek any of my recommended advisers here

This full moon is going to affect almost everyone and it should be embraced as a change that is absolutely necessary. To recognize that something has to go, or leave, and our psyche will help us with this pathway.

If you wish to have a re-cap, I suggest that Virgos and Aries wait until their eclipses, and remember, the magic number for unification, peace, and healing is 40 days, therefore, if you had a reading done less than 40 days please wait for a re-read until the eclipses pass.


To find out where the moon placement of Pisces is in your chart I would recommend that you contact my preferred astrologers and discuss the impact of this moon. Additionally, request your planet placement for future readings so that you do not spend your resources unnecessarily.

May you have the most super full moon with the extreme empathetic passage ever, however be warned that relationship could end due to assumptions. Jobs can end because of money and on the other hand babies can be born around the full moon and investments could go well too. But Mercury retrograde may slow things down so be mindful

Delayed Justice; Unpredictable Understanding: Final Mercury Retrograde for 2015


Mercury Retrograde

Ghost Period: August 26- Sept 16, 2015

Intense Retrograde Period: Sept 17-October 9, 2015

Motion Direct: October 10-17, 2015

By: Maharani Rutan©

The last Mercury retrograde (read about it here) seems like it was just yesterday. With one roller coaster after another between Saturn, Venus, Jupiter, and Pluto playing rough, Mars and Neptune did not help matters much.

Once again we are forced to slow down and consider everything that happened in the past. The slow moving planet mercury will be turning retrograde again on August 26, 2015. It will begin its journey in the ghost period motioning backwards at 28 degrees Virgo. As Mercury is a slow moving planet it will not station retrograde until September 17, 2015.

On October 9, 2015, Mercury will begin its path to motion forwards at 0 degrees Libra; touching every planet again until it hits station direct on October 17, 2015.

Many astrologers believe that a planet that retrogrades begins its period about 2 to 3 weeks before it begins its actual retrograde period. This is especially the case in the Vedic philosophies, meaning plan now for the hindrances of tomorrow and mitigate any future crisis because of planetary stimuli.

Therefore, I would expect that the energy will be felt as early as August 26, 2015 and as late as October 17, 2015. This period may be reflecting a shadow of what is yet to arise.

Many people elaborate that Mercury will straighten out on October 9, 2015, conversely, the speed of the planet must be calculated, which often is not. Nonetheless, some of the anxieties and perplexity could subside by October 9, 2015; hence, one may be still viewing life with foggy glasses until October 17, 2015.

merclibra20015An example of the energy can be drawn as a train. Before the train begins to move on its track there are many things that need to be prepared prior the journey; such as tickets, time, and other mechanical issues that could cause delays.

When Mercury is retrograde, there are a lot of introverted and self-conscious thoughts which could cause memory loss or forgetfulness. With Mercury retrograde in Virgo-Libra, people with this sign conspicuous in their charts will be predominantly disposed to such contemplation.

Since Mercury rules Gemini & Virgo, they too will be affected as the life they may have once known is in a slow speed. But all mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Pisces and Sagittarius) will feel this. Forget about patience, Sagittarius and Pisces may have 0 tolerances. The only thing one must blame it on is Mercury; then again, Mercury does not care how one feels. He will take everyone hostage.

This year’s retrograde has been the most troublesome for Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) causing major frustrations. We began our year with the first Mercury retrograde in Aquarius then moved to Gemini and the very last retrograde for this year is going to pound Libra.

Mercury retrograde in Libra may cause a lot of hindrances for Libras and anything that goes wrong is self-scrutiny. The last time Libra’s may have felt like this could have been around September 2009. This could have caused many people to reconnect with people from the past or they realized that they were in the wrong situation at the wrong time. The most recent retrograde would have been in October, 2014 (read more about it here).

Venus rules Libra which focuses mainly on relationships. Reflection will be directed towards personal lives to evaluate, assess deeper issues of relationships, and opening our eyes to the real problem. Libras must expect the unexpected.


The retrograde does not have to be ruthless; it’s blessing about love of order, loveliness, modification and honesty. Many people start to panic when someone mentions Mercury retrograde due to the reputation of delays, obstacles, and electronic malfunctions.

Mercury in Libra questions how communication and quality of relationships relate to one another. It is time to clear up misunderstandings, create healthy boundaries and set a goal to re-discuss the issues after Mercury is direct so that there is no misinterpretation in the future.

Love matters can be unpredictable and impulsive due to egocentric outlooks. All areas of communication are traumatic, especially matters relating to families, business, and particularly anyone who works from home or travels a lot. Papers can go missing. Be sure to carry a journal and refer to it frequently. Rumors concerning companions, partners, and coworkers should be discounted or taken with a grain of salt, particularly if sex or money are elaborated. The plot will coagulate with ambiguities leading up to October 17, 2015 when mercury begins to moves forward.

A planet is defined as retrograde when it seems to be moving the wrong way through the zodiac. This customary concept rises in the misleading planetary motion created by the orbital turning of the earth and relation to other planets in our solar system. Planets are never essentially retrograde or stationary, they just seem that way, due to this optical impression.


Mercurial energy can be good or bad, but it will certainly be energizing! This Planet also stimulates us to move from one thing to the next and to get answers on both a physical and psychological level. Further, Mercury’s dynamism is both agile and insightful.

Mercury is about short journeys: a visit to a neighbor or a friend across town, the workaday commute, or a weekend getaway. Siblings and transportation, in general, are also within Mercury’s realm. Speaking, writing, books, online communications, and learning are all within Mercury’s domain.

Remember, we can use this powerful energy in positive ways. Use this time to do activities that start with “re”: renew, repair, review, renegotiate, and research.

In general, Mercury rules philosophy and insight, processing and distributing information, and all means of communication, commerce, and transportation. In addition, Mercury rules people who work in these areas, especially people who are thinkers or acumen: writers and orators, commentators and critics, gossips and spin doctors, tricksters and thieves. Mercury retrograde gives rise to personal misapprehensions, unsound, interrupted or postponed communications, conferences and trade, malfunctions and breakdowns with phones, computers, cars, buses, and trains. And all of these problems usually arise because some critical piece of information, or element, has gone off track or askew.


When Mercury is retrograde, everyone’s rational is more meditative and we tend to think about matters causing distress that transmits to the sign involved. Creative propensities including trades, music, art, or design tend to be obstructed by surroundings beyond ones control. Legal matters will progress sluggishly and unanticipated difficulties tend to appear. Mercury retrograde tends to lack complexity of awareness and has no tolerance for detailed exploration. Approaches and inspiration for learning, communication, and transportation are subject to complications under this aspect. It brings travel delays and missed appointments of all kinds.

The good things to do when Mercury is retrograde: reflect, envision, edit the book/poem/song/essay you’ve been writing, clean house, talk to your pet, listen to music, paint, and catch up on sleep!

Tendencies which I elaborate below are general and based on Vedic philosophies, not being directed to any specific individual. If you are curious about how Mercury retrograde will affect you individually, and its effects according to Western Astrology, I would suggest that you contact my recommended astrologer Leslie Hale or any one of my recommended astrologers here

I will begin with Libras and all Air signs(Gemini, Libra & Aquarius) as 2015 has been fixated on Air sign introspection. Followed by Earth signs lead by Virgo that feel as difficulty in adjusting, but mercury is not bias at all and he can rattle Pisces and all water signs. But somehow of all the astrological signs Fire signs are the only one that shakes of almost anything


Libra: This is your Mercury; the universe really wants you to slow down, consider and contemplate who you are. Do you like the way you look? Are your dignity, integrity, and face being saved by your personality? Remember that one of the most important eclipses is coming in your sign next month and some of these answers you must be prepared to answer. You must also consider how your personality affects people, how easily you become sarcastic, and if you always want control.

Gemini: Your relationships with your children, pleasure, and spiritual practices will be questioned and slowed tremendously. You may not enjoy all the things you used to enjoy and you may even feel as though your wishes are not being granted. I would also not be surprised that if you are married or about to get married, issues of the past come back for discussion and you may feel like you did back in May, 2015.

Aquarius: I am sure many Aquarians want to go back to school, or they are becoming spiritual and your intuition is mostly antennas. Learning, visions, travel, and education can all be problematic to you dear Aquarius. There is a high chance you may easily become very confused, you may not be able to sit still or be able to meditate, and your intuition may be off. This is because you are now questioned that if everything in your life is not consistent and all the gifts you have, i.e. learning, teaching, spirituality and initiative capabilities, were not present then who are you?


Virgo: Money has always been on your mind however, this Mercury questions your money, education, resources, security and anything that is focused around money. It may be that your paycheck is delayed, or a deposit gets lost. I would not be surprised that when you expect to be consistent in areas of money this is where the universe will question you as well. The question to Virgo’s occurs even though Jupiter has a nice placement on your chart. If the money was not there or that money is used faster than it comes in will you still be ok? Most of all, how much weight do your place on your financial resources?

Taurus: Even though Jupiter has entered Virgo and this is a blessing for you too, Mercury will make things a little difficult. You may find that your work and health regime has slowed down. You may feel as though your work is coming to an end or something is wrong. It’s a time to introspect whether what you are doing for a living or career is what you want to do for the rest of your life. If so then what can you do to improve productivity?

Capricorn: Power, prestige, recognition, success and status are all important to you Dear Capricorn, but now Mercury questions you and your profession. You may feel that you did not receive the recognition you usually do, you may feel as though you are not getting ahead in your finances, or you may even feel people are disrespecting you. Mercury also questions how reliant you are on your profession and if you aren’t really reliant then why do you put such emphasis on it?

Pisces: Money matters have been the most important aspect of your life since March. But the time is coming where whatever you are owed, such as pension, inheritance, and gratuity is not arriving in the fashion it used to be. Other people are also not compensating or being too generous with you. The problem is you may have been too reliant on this even though the bashful side of you may be denying this. It is asking you, Pisces to get realistic with what other people must give you and consider what you must give to others.

Cancer: The pleasures you have with your mother, house, and what gives you comfort will be questioned. You may find your environment problematic. All facets may have electronic problems, delays, or uncertainties. Mercury now questions how well did you treat your mother? How well did you take care of your things? Most of all, what affect does it have on you as a person?

Scorpio: You have been down the road when financial matters were limited in your life. Normally you can tell who is deceiving you and who is not. You can also tell instantly who your enemies are, doing this with prayer and reliability in the universe. But now the universe questions how reliant are you on spirituality and resources, and do you cry in secret. All these will become obvious and there may be confusion in regard to religious practices and outcomes.

Aries: Your current relationship will be tried. It is Mercury’s way of having you reassess your past and consider how you may have affected the relationship. I would not be surprised if there are misunderstandings and miscommunication in all areas of personal relationships. You should know that you do not want the past relationships back otherwise they will haunt you.

Leo: You may discover that this retrograde is causing you to be sluggish at work or that there is no work that needs to be done. You may become bored and often feel as though something is wrong. If you work in areas of creativity, writing, or any sort of media, expect glitches in all aspects of creativity and passion.

Sagittarius: I realize you hate Mercury retrograde because you seem to think that Mercury slaps you harder than anyone else. However, this is not true. As a matter of fact you will now see that friendships will be questioned, friends from the past may reconnect, and most of all the communications that friends give to you may seem scattered and confusing.

All of the references listed above are mere tendencies and again, I would recommend you speak to an astrologer if you want in-depth knowledge of how Mercury will touch each planet or none.

Since Mercury is a very sluggish moving planet and it affects virtually all planetary signs, it is my suggestion that you purchase a yellow candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with Inspiration oil or Eucalyptus oil and chant the Psalm 70 every single night. This period will last for 3 weeks and it will be hard on all of us. These actions will allow friendly communications as well as understanding in challenging situations.

You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until October 21, 2015. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is dependent upon the quality of intention. When it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. I have chosen the following mantra for you during this Mercury retrograde:

“Om Budhaya Namaha”

(Om Bood-han-yah Nahm-ah-ha)

“Om and salutations to Buddha, presiding spirit of planet mercury”


This mantra is used to attain spiritual transparency, to evade and overcome misinterpretations, and keep welcoming communications smooth.

Keep in mind this is not a time to make any hardcore decisions about anything – rather, think about it. Sign, promise, and create nothing. Remember that legal issues, closings, work, communication, and transportation will all be flawed at this time.

Young woman sitting on sofa, looking at distressed man at table

Most of all make no decisions regarding relationships, there can be difficult conversations, misunderstandings, obsession, jealousy, envy and even power struggles. If by any chance the relationship breaks up, it will be hard to mold it back together again this year as you may have to wait until next year to do so.

In awaiting reunions, make sure you know if this is what you want because if the person is reserved, difficult to understand or just unavailable, they will still be that way now. Again if there is a reunion then do not expect it to stay forever, as all the issues of the past will come tumbling down at the next mercury

Timeless Compassion: New Moon in Leo August 2015


New Moon in Leo

August 12, 2015

By Maharani Rutan©

After a hectic, chaotic July, the new moon in Leo will be very welcoming. Peace and understanding is a natural characteristic of Leo’s, but most of all they find families and family life to be the most wonderful.

Not only do Leo’s love to love but they love the family life with happiness. Jupiter, a goddess of love, abundance, and prosperity has been gracing Leo’s for the past two years. While it was in Leo the energy allowed many of us to stand firm to our belief system and have confidence in things we have done and are about to do.


The void of the moon will be just as graceful for those that are born in the later parts of Leo. This new moon will bring the tranquility that we are looking for at 21 degrees depending upon the orb. Therefore, anyone that is born August 12th through 19th will be impacted. Our skies will be voided at exactly 10:53 am EST or 7:53 PST.

The New Moon endows us to look at time in a new way and allow the calming inspiration and understanding to form new starts. The energy is just right for making the adjustments that are essential to create fresh or discover new prospects. It could be as simple as redoing your hair, or changing the entire way you look. Even a simple change would be to take the long route to work. However, recognize that certain fluctuations are because certain things have been procrastinated due to hesitancy or fear. The heart is allowing the drives to motion a time to make modifications and say “I am what I am”.


The New Moon blesses all projects, communication, and visions. Even if there is displeasure there is no chaos to make you feel that it was a disaster. Rather, it was an experience that needed to be learned. Music, Art, and all those things that make home a home will be the theme of this new moon.

The Leo moon brings with it determination, appeal and power. This will be predisposed by affectations, craving, and contentment where inspiration, honesty, and kindness will be glorified. This is the best time to look for close connections or bring harmony to your relationships.


Even though Jupiter has moved away from Leo and entered Virgo (read about it here), Mars continues to transit Leo until the eclipse (Sept 24, 2015). Mars in Leo causes many Leo’s to be narcissistic, vigorous, robust, strong minded and competitive. Everything that is being done is all you have to give but be very careful, being conceited is not your forte and there can be instances where you may become very self-protective.

With all the tension of the sun, moon, Pluto, and Saturn, Virgo’s are thankful to their fellow Leo’s for passing the torch of Jupiter into another sign. Though Jupiter acts in many different ways depending on each unique and individual astrological chart, lady luck is surely to grace Virgos starting August 11, 2015 several days before this new moon.


The Leo moon often leads people to feel that they have to be the focus of consideration and must repeatedly obtain gratefulness. If they are not given this praise they may act irresponsibly. This could be in the form of being aggressive or melodramatic; creating love or chaos. On the other hand, Leo’s often praise people and give confident acknowledgement when they need it. They are great cheerers and people pleasers that bring out the self-assurance and bravery in others. They are also very family-oriented where mommies are seen as very modest people and they hold the independence, openness, and gifts from their mothers or a motherly figure.

Since last December, Saturn has been retrograding in Scorpio which slowed everything down for them. This beautiful transit, which is often referred to as the most difficult and most inspiring transit, entered Scorpio November 2012. (Read more about it here). Scorpios have exactly one more month until Saturn does not come back to Scorpio. To find out more about this transit I would recommend you talk with Leslie Hale here, or my other recommended astrologers here.


The Leo energy can sometimes cause us to be more compulsive, persistent, gratified, provoked, arrogant, egocentric, or patronizing. It’s harder (but not impossible) to make modifications or be agile. The more warmth, understanding, and support are proficient during the new moon phase, the more perfectionism will come of it.

The moon in Leo is Vigorous, Courageous, Melodramatic, Talented, and Structured, AND CHANGEABLE. It is my suggestion that you purchase a Green candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with lemon oil or Lavender oil and chant Psalm 65. You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle.


Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras, achieving the desired result is reliant on upon the quality of purpose. When it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. Never pray for someone but pray for peace for everyone so that the person in your focus also receives the same without being selfish.

The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. The mantra for Leo moon is:


“Om Sri suryaya namaha”

(Om Shree sur-ya-ya nam-aha)

This mantra will aid greatly in the peaceful and harmonious transition to new and positive energy states.


For those that are proficient in mantra chanting and Sanskrit ideology, and have their Padma open through years of practice, you might want to consider reciting:

Om Hrim Shrim Klim Sri Surya Swaha

(Om h rem sh rem cal aim Sur Ya Swa Ha)

One full mala a day or 101 recited mantra until the next moon


This mantra will bring light and deliverance to your life with all the might and power of the universe.

With every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old declaration, even if there is the slightest change, and create new ones.


The perfect number for desires is 10. This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle. Remember, never make the affirmations begin with “I want”, it must be worded “I need to be guided.”

Please understand that I am not an astrologer; however, Vedic readings integrate the energies of astrology and bring to the reading encoded impediment and dynamic forces for free will options.


Vedic readings do not tell you what to do; rather, determine a possible path which might be taken and allow free will choices to resolve conflicts before they occur. Think of Vedic readings as the GPS navigator and astrology is the vehicle. Without a vehicle you could still get to your destination but it may take much longer. Even if you have a vehicle, this does not mean that you can’t get lost. But sometimes if you knew the road it would make life much simpler. This is why astrology focuses on the moons, as well as the sun placement, to bring the most directional aspects for beneficial journeys mathematically, and Vedic readings provide the choices.

Astrology combined with Vedic readings can give a play to play on how each month will bring sublime bliss or answers to maneuver. I would recommend you contact Leslie Hale (click here) for further details on your Astrological transits.


I only wish that you make the best of this energy and spend more time with the people that mean the most to you.

Remember Supermoon, Mercury retrograde, Jupiter movement, and the Eclipses can make it difficult for many people in late August/ September. So breathe for now and enjoy.

Envision a Vision: First Step: Jupiter in Virgo 2015-2016

juptvirgo25014Jupiter enters Virgo

August 11/12, 2015 through October 2016

(This is for all those Virgos whom I adore)

By Maharani Rutan©

I have always been curious as to how the complexity of astrology, whether Vedic or Western, predetermines specifics in events of the world as well as in people. The other day I was watching the History Channel; the main topic discussed the “combination of Astronomy and Astrology”-History Channel. To my surprise it was quite fascinating. Though this series questions faith, religion and opens up the discussion of existence, their modern science theory has always fascinated me.

With a little help from my Guru in India, I have decided to write more about the planet of Jupiter. Though there has not been much discussion of this planet, I feel this planet is like whipped cream on an apple pie. Yes, the Apple Pie does taste good alone but it tastes even better when there is whipped cream – but it depends if you like whipped cream. I find it a breath of fresh air. Therefore, those that have had Jupiter in their sign must have felt that was as well.


However, choosing this planet was also serendipity as Jupiter is moving into Virgo on August 11/12, 2015 and it will grace all Virgos for 18 months where it will go direct and stationary between Virgo and Libra. There was a similar event such as this from August 2003 through October 2004. During that time Virgos had planted some sort of a seed. Whatever the seed that was, 12 years later it may bloom again. Depending on how badly you want it.

Many of you may not even know what Jupiter is while some may know that it is a good planet to have. Well my friends, everyone has Jupiter (Guru) in their charts and it crosses each sign 2.5 years according to the sun or the moon (Vedic or Western). I will not go into the jest of the difference between the two, but the only thing you need to know at the moment is that Vedic theory is where the earth revolves around the moon; whereas, western theory depicts that the earth moves around the sun. This only means that whether you focus on Vedic or Western, the signs that one characterizes is either one sign ahead of the other or vice versa. This also makes a big difference when creating individual charts as well as the placement of each planet. There are many different mathematical aspects of astrology and each astrologer places their own twist on how to interpret the situation. But I can guarantee that each astrologer feels Jupiter is a blessing.

No matter which philosophy one follows, the planet of Jupiter has the same meaning. Jupiter is a good blessing, affluence, assistance, trust, optimism and positivity. I have had dialogs with my closest friends whose primary focus is on Western Astrology, and my Guru who uses Hindu Ancient Vedic Philosophies, to guide me through my prayers and be my console. I was reminded to let the people who do their jobs well do that job, meaning there are so many gifted Western Astrologers who have years of experience that are well respected. For those who want to probe in that area, I could suggest you contact any one of my astrologer associates by clicking (here). For my Hindu Vedic Astrology followers, your Gurus are easy to find; just step into any Temple and you will find Pundits. These Pundits know more about Vedic Astrology than those that try to sell it to you on Indian Television Channels. And all your contributions are tax free at the temple.

However, Vedic Readers have a completely different prospective. Imagine for a moment that Astrology is the GPS of your life, it tells you which way you will go and at what time. In mathematical calculation of day or year it can also predetermine a good day for something i.e. marriage, home etc. Some Astrology (Vedic) also recommends you wear a certain stone or fast a certain day, to reduce the severity of planets. However, Astrology may not tell you if you take the wrong road what could happen, nor will it tell you, if the road is bumpy, what you should do, and most of all what about the weather. I realize there may be some out there however; the accuracy of those GPS’s can be questioned. Therefore Vedic Reading incorporates the characteristics of Astrology. It maps out the terrain for a short period of time so that next time you are down that bumpy road in the rain you might want to pull over. So when the sun shines again you have gotten where you needed to go just in time.


The Planet Jupiter is also similar in the philosophies in that it touches each sign; kisses them and asks the question what will you do with what I have given you? Jupiter is ruled by Sagittarius and Pisces in Vedic, its name is Guru. Since my philosophies are rooted from the eastern world I will have a primary focus on Vedic vision, thus if Western Astrology is the way one wants to proceed I would highly suggest you contact my recommended astrologers here. But you can always have an open mind to other philosophies to bring richness and knowledge to your experiences.

Jupiter in Sankrit (the oldest native Indian language) is named as Brahaspati, or Guru for short. It has been said in the old ancient writings that Guru oversees all the planets. He is the teacher and he rules the sun and the moon, including its movements. Guru as we will call him from this day forward, brings good fortune, faith, thinking, mysticism, prosperity, children, accomplishment, integrity, affluence, and partnerships. You may notice many characteristics of Sagittarius and Pisces, and what they rule. Hence, there is an addition to Guru: wherever Guru is placed in ones chart is where one will reap the benefits the most. This placement is the transference of past life karma of the good that he/she will be a benefactor of.


Like Sagittarius, Guru blesses journeys, knowledge, reliability, ethics, handouts, compassion, concern and introspection. This is especially the case for those whose decisions would change the lives of many; Jupiter is also highly imperative for women.

To not to make this blog more complicated, my direction will be focused on how Jupiter magnifies or harms our life. Though we know now the ruling planet of Guru, however he loves to be in a sign of Cancer and Capricorn. So if you Jupiter is placed in your chart in a sign of Cancer you will naturally be blessed, but it does not mean you will always be blessed. This does not mean that other planets or astrological signs will not be blessed but when Jupiter enters ones Sun, Moon, or Mars and is in a sign or Capricorn or Cancer it is usually magnified.


As Jupiter changes signs every 18-24 months. On August 11, 2015, Jupiter will enter/return in the sign of Virgo. Nevertheless, before one can determine severity or the impact of Jupiter, it is imperative to understand the characteristics of the astrological sign.

Virgos are very hardworking people who use their acute, systematic, and organizational skill to move forward in life. Sometimes Virgos get so involved in little details of things that they can’t look at the big picture. They are extremely clean people, though they are good at taking care of themselves, their addictive personality may move them into direction of eating sweets, or extreme salt. The most gratification to a Virgo is their career, not only do they want to be recognized but they want to complete everything perfectly. If they work in a field of helping others they will have instant gratification. Though they are their best in the medical field, they are such perfectionists that they can worry more than they work at times. They are often referred as overachievers and neurotics.


But now Virgos can breathe a little. Virgos will now have a clearer mind as to what is happening in their lives. They will become much more practical yet optimistic and all their talents will come naturally such as truth, health, problem solving and being analytical. There were many hints that the universe had given to you in approximately 2002-2004. Any risks you took that were mistakes brought you to today. Now that you have learned to make mature decisions, Jupiter will bless us to look at things in a much larger view. Virgos will question what they need to do to change. They know though that they want life to be perfect, they are not perfect, and that it is not the experience but the journey that will take them there.

For all the hard work Virgos have put into themselves through changes and all the pain and suffering. this is the best time of your life. It’s time to get your hands dirty as you will reap what you sow. Your skills will be perfected, and who knows, you may learn something new. Virgos will also become busy bees. It will be time to take those baby steps. Virgos looking for some sort of break, here it comes. Those Virgos that are seeking to expand, move, or alter their career, Jupiter will help you succeed.


For anything that is work oriented, one should allow Virgos to lead, or be involved, because Jupiter is kissing them – it will succeed. Speaking of which, success only comes when Virgos feel good about themselves, and finally they will look at their health habits such as food and diet and decide to take better care of themselves (no more cookies, apple fritters and chips) –Who me ? I would never say such thing dear Virgo.

Baby boomers, and Generation X; 54-58 and 66- 70, this is your Jupiter. With its return you are now about to go deeper into your heart and make your wishes come true; but not just Virgos, however, all earth signs will be affected. If your work is honest, with morality and values, you will reap the rewards but if you take on too much as a part of ego driven leadership then you won’t be able to handle all that is imposed on you.


Throughout September, with the eclipse and confusion of what you need to do to bring luck (Neptune/Jupiter Square), you may seem confused. But when Jupiter was in Leo you learned something very important; either look out for yourself or look out for yourself and others. From that idea you will now have the inspiration you need to move forward. Now is the time to take your ideas home.

Mercury is going begin to move backwards in time in Virgo. The ghost period begins on August 25, 2015 and it switches signs on September 12, 2015 when it moves into Libra until October, 22, 2015 (give or take a couple of days). Additionally, New moon in Virgo on September 12, 2015 paired with the partial solar eclipse at 10 degrees Virgo will assist all Virgos to shed their old skin and promise of a new one (blog to be posted by Aug 20-22, 2015).



Virgo’s have been thinking too much; as a matter of fact, I could smell the fire all the way here. Your visions will come to reality. Remember that Guru is on your side, you can now improve every aspect of your life such as love, life, work, and career. You may get an itch to go somewhere where you have never been before. You will no longer fear that someone will create restrictions or place heavy burdens on your plate. Be careful though, when Jupiter is in a specific sign there are extra pounds that should be there and because you are enjoying life so much you may forget your blood pressure or sugar. Forget those Apple Fritters, Chocolate Chip cookies and most of all rich foods that make you go yummm. You will regret it later.

Virgos may be very concerned about family, home, and work. I would not be at all surprised if there is a large purchase such as a building or apartment, or come on some money you never thought you had. At the same time, Virgos do love their families and there will be deep worries relating to family matters. But don’t expect your entire journey for 18 months to be a bed of Roses. You may become short tempered and when you feel your opinion is not being heard, be flexible and open.


My dear Virgo, be good while Jupiter comes to visit. If you want things to be fair don’t micromanage, and you will soon realize everything is not as is seems if you place your feet in another shoes.

I will write more as the eclipses passes by but for now …. Enjoy your gift and part II will soon come.
